Brown rice (BR) and white rice (WR) produce different glycaemic responses and their consumption may affect the dietary management of obesity. In the present study, the effects of BR and WR on abdominal fat distribution, metabolic parameters and endothelial function were evaluated in subjects with the metabolic syndrome in a randomised cross-over fashion. In study 1, acute postprandial metabolic parameters and flow- and nitroglycerine-mediated dilation (FMD and NMD) of the brachial artery were… 
Effect of partially-abraded brown rice consumption on body weight and the indicators of glucose and lipid metabolism in pre-diabetic adults: A randomized controlled trial
TLDR
It is suggested that continuous intake of PABR could be effective for body weight reduction and lipid metabolism improvement in overweight participants with pre-diabetes.
Fiber-rich diet with brown rice improves endothelial function in type 2 diabetes mellitus: A randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Intervention with a fiber-rich diet with brown rice effectively improved endothelial function, without changes in HbA1c levels, possibly through reducing glucose excursions.
Comparative study between the effects of some dietary sources and metformin drug on weight reduction in obese rats
TLDR
Grain such as rice and oat may offer some protection against the early stage of obesity and the development of complications and the statistical analysis referred that the positive control group was significantly increased in feed intake, triglycerides, HDL/LDL-cholesterol and VLDl-ch cholesterol.
Effectiveness of germinated brown rice on metabolic syndrome: A randomized control trial in Vietnam
TLDR
The main finding showed that the percentages of patients with MetS in the PGBR group were reduced significantly compared to the placebo group (p < 0.05), and it is suggested that P GBR may affect HDL cholesterol,PGBR might be considered in reducing the risk of metS in Vietnam.
Evaluation of the Obesity Prevention, Blood Glucose, and Blood Lipid Control of Vietnamese Rice Varieties in High-Fat Diet-Induced Obese Mice
TLDR
Five Vietnamese rice varieties, which differ in their basic chemical composition (starch content, amylose content, fiber content), were chosen for this study to help patients with overweight, obesity, and type 2 diabetes choose the right rice variety for their daily diet to be able to control their diseases.
Eating glutinous brown rice for one day improves glycemic control in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes assessed by continuous glucose monitoring.
TLDR
GBR intake suppressed the whole-day glucose profile of patients with T2DM, mainly by reducing postprandial glucose excursion, and GBR was preferred over BR with respect to palatability, suggesting GBR may be worth adding to the diet of patientsWith type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Rice Bran Extract Reduces the Risk of Atherosclerosis in Post-Menopausal Vietnamese Women.
TLDR
It is suggested that PSG may improve LDL cholesterol, TNF-α levels, and FMD values, and might be considered in reducing the risk of atherosclerosis in post-menopausal Vietnamese women with high LDL cholesterol.
Effect of Eating Glutinous Brown Rice Twice a Day for 6 Weeks on Serum 1,5-Anhydroglucitol in Japanese Subjects without Diabetes
We have previously demonstrated that eating glutinous brown rice (GBR) for 1 day or 8 weeks was well accepted and improved glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes. The present study
A perspective on the benefits of consumption of parboiled rice over brown rice for glycaemic control
Rice is a staple food for over 3.5 billion people worldwide. The nutritional content of rice varies with different post-harvest processing techniques. Major varieties include brown rice (BR), white
Efficacy of Isomaltulose Compared to Sucrose in Modulating Endothelial Function in Overweight Adults
TLDR
The data support the potential of isomaltulose to preserve the endothelial function postprandially and consequently play a favorable role in cardiovascular health and support the lower FMD in insulin-resistant (IR) subjects.

Effects of dietary composition on postprandial endothelial function and adiponectin concentrations in healthy humans: a crossover controlled study.
TLDR
Examination of the associations of dietary composition and postprandial endothelial function in healthy subjects found that endothelial dysfunction after a high-fat meal was closely correlated with FFA concentrations, which could be hazardous, mostly through acute hyperlipacidemia inhealthy subjects.
Postprandial blood glucose and insulin responses to pre-germinated brown rice in healthy subjects.
TLDR
Results suggest that intake of PGBR instead of WR is effective for the control of postprandial blood glucose concentration without increasing the insulin secretion.
Postprandial impairment of flow-mediated dilation and elevated methylglyoxal after simple but not complex carbohydrate consumption in dogs.
TLDR
The novel finding of this study was that methylglyoxal levels increased after a single feeding of simple carbohydrate and may be linked to the observed postprandial decrease in endothelial function, suggesting that consuming low-glycemic-index foods may protect the cardiovascular system by reducing oxidative stress.
Effects of a single administration of acarbose on postprandial glucose excursion and endothelial dysfunction in type 2 diabetic patients: a randomized crossover study.
TLDR
Even a single loading of test meal was shown to impair endothelial function in type 2 diabetic patients, and the postprandial endothelial dysfunction was improved by a prior use of acarbose, which might reduce macrovascular complication by avoiding endothelial injury in postpr andial hyperglycemic status.
Effect of whole grains on insulin sensitivity in overweight hyperinsulinemic adults.
TLDR
Insulin sensitivity may be an important mechanism whereby whole-grain foods reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease and is tested in overweight and obese adults.
Miglitol, α-glycosidase inhibitor, reduces visceral fat accumulation and cardiovascular risk factors in subjects with the metabolic syndrome: a randomized comparable study.
TLDR
The results indicated that miglitol showed an anti-obesity potential, which was achieved by reducing abdominal fat accumulation and/or enhanced insulin requirement, and then corrected both the metabolic and hemodynamic aberrations seen in patients with the metabolic syndrome.
Lifestyle modification improves endothelial function in obese subjects with the insulin resistance syndrome.
TLDR
It is concluded that 6 months of weight reduction and exercise improve macrovascular endothelial function and reduces selective markers of endothelial activation and coagulation in obese subjects with IRS regardless of the degree of glucose tolerance.
Lowering of LDL cholesterol rather than moderate weight loss improves endothelium-dependent vasodilatation in obese women with previous gestational diabetes.
TLDR
Orlistat but not moderate (8%) weight loss per se improves endothelial function in women with previous gestational diabetes, and this improvement is associated with a lowering of LDL cholesterol by orlistat.
The acute effect of orlistat on endothelial function in young obese women.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that orlistat improved endothelial function, weight, body mass index and systolic and diastolic blood pressure in young women.
Effect of short-term weight loss on the metabolic syndrome and conduit vascular endothelial function in overweight adults.
TLDR
A moderate degree of weight reduction over 3 months improved the metabolic syndrome profile but not the vascular dysfunction associated with uncomplicated obesity.
